The world is full of beautiful creations. Human brains and ideas when these two matters merge together then there would be a wonderful creation. When a sculptor is experimenting with his idea then the idea becomes a unique design. Let’s look at some beautiful sculptures around the world
Expansion, New York
Sculptor Paige Bradley created this beautiful sculptor “Expansion”. Her works mostly focused on tensions and liberations.

My sculptures show the human race as a singular individual searching for connection but finding only alienation.” The sculptor is a female body which bleeds out the light.
